Dominio de Pingus  Pingus 2011 Red Spanish Wine
Dominio de Pingus Pingus 2011 Red Spanish Wine

eRobertParker.com #202

Rated (94-96) Aug 2012 Drink: 2020 - 2035

"The 2011 Pingus has a gorgeous, pure black cherry, cassis and blueberry scented bouquet interlaced by orange blossom and apricot. The oak is beautifully assimilated into the aromatic profile. The palate is full-bodied with a decadent entry. The tannins are ripe and rounded, imparting great tension and focus. There is both dimension and grace to this formidable Pingus that should blossom once it finishes its gestation. This is an outstanding Ribera del Duero wine. Drink 2020-2035+. "  Neal Martin

Dominus Estate 2014 California Red Napa Wine 750 mL

James Suckling 98 points - TOP 100 WINES OF 2017

"Loads of dark tobacco aromas with blackcurrants and black olives. Boysenberries, too. Full to medium body, ultra-fine tannins and lots of flavors of smoke, dried roasted chillis, black truffles, mushrooms and fruit. Bright acidity on the finish. Sexy and subtle austerity. Alluring. Very approachable now but better in 2021." November/2017

Dominus is the proprietary red wine produced by Christian Moueix, from grapes grown on a single vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley. The wines reflect both the California terroir and the spirit of a great Bordeaux chateau, with its attention to detail and devotion to quality in every aspect of winemaking.

Dow Vintage Port 2016 Portugese Dessert Wine 750 mL
Dow Vintage Port 2016 Portugese Dessert Wine 750 mL

Vinous 98 points - The 2016 Dow’s Vintage Port is based around the Vinha dos Ecos vineyard behind Bomfim, populated predominantly by mature Touriga Franca vines that were cropped at just 0.68kg per vine. It has a quite astonishing bouquet with layer upon layer of intense black cherry and cassis fruit, touches of clove, leather and a hint of over-ripe Satsuma. This is a mercurial bouquet that keeps changing in the glass, revealing smoky/burning ember scents with time. The palate is quite magnificent - perfectly balanced with a killer thread of acidity slicing through such pure intense black fruit that there is no heaviness at all. There is a sense of thrust on the finish as it fans out with almost careless abandon, a Vintage Port so self-assured that you can only sit back in amazement. Simply one of the best Dow’s ever made..June/2018

 

Dow’s Vintage Ports are only produced in years of exceptional quality and represent only a very small part of the total company’s production in that year. On average only two or three times every ten years are the weather conditions sufficiently good to allow for the making of Dow’s Vintage Port. Dow’s Ports avoid an over-rich style and requires a very high degree of skill in wine making and great experience in selecting the finest wines of each year and each vineyard. These wines are aged in seasoned oak casks for some 18 months and are bottled without any filtration or fining whatsoever.

Emilio Moro Malleolus de Sanchomartin 2011 Spanish Ribera del Duero Red Wine 750 mL
Emilio Moro Malleolus de Sanchomartin 2011 Spanish Ribera del Duero Red Wine 750 mL

Wine Advocate 94 points - The other single-vineyard Tempranillo is the 2011 Malleolus de Sancho Martin, always the more backward of the two. It is sourced from a small (0.84-hectare) single plot of vines planted in 1964 on chalk soils that provide more austere wines. It went through malo in French barriques, better suited for wines from chalky soils. Like the rest of the top of the range, it matured in French oak barrels for some 18 months before bottling. Although it feels a little reticent, it slowly develops notes of minerals, red and black fruit, spices and nicely integrated oak. The palate also shows good integration, balance and elegance, with chalky tannins that are very fine and a finish where the oak-related flavors are intermixed with subtle minerality, giving it a little salty sensation. It will be much better with some time in bottle. Only 2,500 bottles produced..Luis Gutirrez, October/2015

Emilio Moro Malleolus de Valderramiro 2005 1.5L Red Spanish Wine

These are magnums (1.5L)! 97 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "The 2005 Malleolus de Valderramiro is a dense opaque purple color. It has a roasted character along with Asian spices, incense, and a cocktail of black fruits. Powerful on the palate, this is a packed effort with loads of fruit and tannin that will require a minimum of 8-10 years to become approachable." -Jay Miller

Fonseca Porto Vintage Port 1992 1.5 Liter Portuguese dessert wine
Fonseca Porto Vintage Port 1992 1.5 Liter Portuguese dessert wine

Wine Advocate # 97 (Feb 1995) Rating: 97 points Drink 1995 - 2035 "Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house's most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years." -Robert Parker

Lokoya Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder 2007
Lokoya Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder 2007
Extremely Limited! No Discounts!

99 Points - Wine Advocate, December 2009
"The nearly perfect, inky/purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder boasts abundant aromas of blueberry pie, ink, violets, burning embers, and camphor. The staggeringly intense, provocatively complex aromatics are followed by a full-bodied wine with exquisite concentration as well as a stunningly pure texture. One of the most prodigious 2007 Cabernets I tasted, it should provide magical drinking in 5-6 years, and last for three decades or more. Jess Jackson, who has spawned some of California's most talented winemakers, has Chris Carpenter behind the success of these wines. These current releases are the strongest efforts from Lokoya since their 1997s, 2001s, and 2002s. Production ranges from a low 200 cases for the Diamond Mountain, to over 1,000 cases for the highest rated cuvee, the Mount Veeder. All these wines have indigenous yeast fermentations, are aged approximately 21 months in new French oak, and are bottled with minimal clarification. They are made from what is essentially the best fruit from the remarkable array of vineyards owned by Jess Jackson." -Robert Parker
